BELGIUM: K Sparta Tienen (1948-1973, 2005-2013) / Klub 73 Tienen (1973-1991) / RC Tienen (1991-2005) / K Sparta Kumtich-Tienen (B) (2013-2016, 2017-2018) / K Sparta Kumtich-Tienen (2016-2017)

Elsenbosweg, Tienen (formerly K Sparta Tienen / Klub 73 Tienen / RC Tienen / K Sparta Kumtich-Tienen)

Belgium, province: Flemish Brabant

15 XII 2018 / Buffalo Tienen - Rood-Groen Oplinter 1-5 / Limburg & Flemish Brabant, Recreational League 2

Note: Sparta Tienen (matricule 5044), founded in 1948, underwent several name changes, becoming Klub 73 Tienen (1973), Racing Club Tienen (1991), back to Sparta Tienen (2005), and finally Sparta Kumtich-Tienen (2013). Sparta Kumtich-Tienen's first team, however, played at the Sint-Barbarastraat ground in Kumtich, which had been occupied by KVV Oorbeek-Kumtich until 2008; the pitch at Elsenbosweg remained in use for reserves' games and training purposes. In 2016, however, Sparta Kumtich-Tienen were forced out of the stadium in Kumtich; as a result, during the 2016-2017 season, all teams played their football at Elsenbosweg, before the club's first team moved away once more, this time beginning a groundshare with Crossing Vissenaken (2017); finally, in 2018, Sparta Kumtich-Tienen were absorbed into Crossing Vissenaken. From that moment on, the Elsenbosweg ground has been used only by recreational teams, such as Raket Tienen and Buffalo Tienen.
